As a practice, I worked on reproducing in Blender a photo I saw on Instagram that I really liked.
Worked mostly with 2.81 but finished it with 2.82a and used Cycles. It took 8m32s with 32 steps (I’ll increase that for the final version).
The bust was a sculpt created from scratch and used Substance painter to texture it. The rest of textures are just regular PBR’s from the free sites available.
Rocks were created with Rock Generator and the ivy was created with particles as I didn’t like Ivy Gen’s results.
The original photo can be found here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B63sZ3WoDco/?igshid=wf4jzzh2hc94 and I asked for the original creator’s permission to reproduce and share my version.
